How open is ‘open’?

Burj Dubai will reportedly open on December 2.

Burj Dubai will open allegedly on December 2, UAE National Day, according to Arabian Business, citing an anonymous architect.

Kipp feels that when developers use words like “open” or “complete”, we suspect they’ve got their own definitions. Based purely on empirical evidence, Kipp has found that ‘complete’ and ‘open’ can mean partially finished and somewhat functional.

Cynical? Yes. But we’re hoping we’ll be proven wrong.
